Bility: Nyonblee, Dillon, others risk expulsion

Embattled Chairman of the Liberty Party,  Musa Hassan Bility has threatened to expel Senators Nyounblee Kangar-Lawrence, Abraham Darius Dillon and other delinquent officials next month if they fail to meet up with their obligation with the party.

Bility’s warning comes weeks after the Monrovia City Court threw out the allegation of forgery brought against him and his Secretary General Martin Kollah by two members of the party.

The embattled LP chair told newsmen at the grounds of the Temple of Justice on Monday that the officials were given grace periods up to March 2022, to settle their financial obligations or be expelled with immediate effect for their disobedience and disrespect to law and norms.

At least 16 party officials of the Liberty Party (LP), including Political Leader Senators Karngar Lawrence, Dillon, and Steve Zargo were suspended from the party in December for defaulting on their dues payment.

The rest included Representatives Johnathan Kaipay, Hans Barchue, Mr. Prince Toles, vice chair for Mobilization, Mr. Augustine Fredericks, vice chair for Inter-Party & NEC Affairs, Mrs. Edith Gongloe-Weh, Eminent Partisan, Debar Allen, NAC Chair/ NAC Representative to NEC, Mr. Jacob Smith, NAC member and Mr. Nathaniel Barnes, NAC Member among other senior county officials of the party.

In a letter dated December 6, 2021, signed by Mr. Bility, the party’s National Chairman, and addressed to Sen. Karnga-Lawrence, the LP noted that its political leader and other senior members were not in good standing with the party as it relates to their dues obligations and payments as defined by Article IX of the LP Constitution.

However, Bility said though a grace period had been awarded to the suspended officials to settle their financial disabilities they risk expulsion from the party if they failed to meet up with their obligation.

He, however, noted that the party decided to extend the grace period of Kangar-Lawrence and Dillion to enable them to have enough space and time to settle their due payment but could be expelled if they fail to do so after the March deadline.

“I am giving them from now to March to meet up with their obligation and if they fail to do so, they will be expelled from the party. Meet their obligation is the law and we cannot negotiate the law because the law is the law and they should do what is right in the sight law. 

For the peace that you are asking me about, the only thing in the interest of the party is the law not individual and they have to go back to the law and make sure that the right thing is done. We are not begging them but just telling them because they have from now to March or else they will be expelled from the party,’’ Bility said.

He also mentioned the recent decision taken by the National Elections Commission (NEC) to recognize the Liberty Party’s 2021 constitution and his leadership as legitimate, saying he extolled the decision of the NEC to rule in his favor declaring the LP’s constitution of 2021 as the legitimate document.

“Senator Nyonblee Kangar-Lawrence and Dillon are always on the wrong side and they have never won, therefore, nobody should feel sorry for them because the law has rules. We will make sure that we make this party a great place for all,” said Bility.

He indicated that the Liberty Party will be about the institution instead of individuals. He also vowed to correct the wrong in the party and to make sure that its agenda for development is expressed everywhere and the people have confidence in the party and its leadership.
